We consider ourselves to be incredibly fortunate in receiving invaluable support from fantastic celebrity supporters throughout 2015. So, as the year comes to a close, some of our celebrity ambassadors share their special Christmas wishes with us for the year ahead…

Joanna Lumley
“I wish that we human animals should think hard about the way we treat our cousins, the animal animals: the 'other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of time and life'. Best thing would be not to eat them, I think.”

Toyah Wilcox
“My Christmas wish this year is that all animals have a good life and are treated with the compassion and respect that they deserve. AND for those ending up on our dinner plates we show gratitude for their precious lives.”

Pauline McLynn
“My Christmas wish is for a world free from cruelty.”

Ellie Harrison
“My Christmas wish is for us to spend a few seconds acknowledging and visualising the process that got the food to our plate. From the life on the land - its quality and length - to the life transported; the slaughterhouse (including the people who work there) to the clean ingredients on the shelves. We are responsible for our decisions in the process.”

Liz Earle MBE
“My wish is for a fairer farming system with far more support for the small scale farmer doing the right thing for their animals.”

Peter Egan
“My Christmas wish for farm animals is for people to show the same care for all livestock that they show for their companion animals. The first duty of care is not to eat them, wear them or use them for entertainment.”

Flavia Cacace-Mistry
“My Christmas wish is that humans and animals could all live in harmony together and put an end to animal cruelty.”

Carley Stenson
“My Christmas wish is for people to treat all animals with compassion and respect.”

Merry Christmas to all our wonderful supporters and may 2016 be the most compassionate year yet!
